Borrow money from a pessimist, they don't expect it back.

I like that idea a lot to nearmint! It's funny what you pick up on. Little things you may not have noticed initially, different angles, etc.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

This is not my way.
I don't like to carry the statues around.

But I need better tools for dusting.
Currently I am using the vacuum cleaner (lowest suction level) and Swiffer. But with the Swiffer I always get stuck somewhere

Funny enough, i can see many of my pieces while watching TV. Time and time again, during the adverts, my attention is drawn to a piece, and i notice something i hadn't noticed before. Fact is, when a piece first arrives, i'm only too happy to open it, make sure it is not broken, no wonky eyes etc, assemble it, place it on a shelf, take some photo's, job done!
Better appreciation comes later on.

Every couple of month I'll see a dust layer starting to form and a cleaning I will go.
Thankfully my collection is still small, although it will grow next year once I get my new display.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

+1 for air purifiers... I don’t see a reason to dust daily or even weekly when having them

Are these devices really that good?
Do you run it 24 hours a day?

I'm in the nearmint club, every 2 to 4 weeks take them out and I brush them down with art brushes, they're very soft so perfect for the job, I find it quite therapeutic and also it does give you a chance to see things you missed.

Does the dust sticks to the brushes.
Do you have a link or a item name?

I started using art brushes as I've got a few anyway, but I decided to get ones specifically for the job and these are the ones I've found work well,

edit; sorry missed the bit about dust sticking...no it doesn't, I tend to just brush them down and put them back up on the shelf, so the dust is down on the counter where I clean them.
